A new experience for us to see ancient sites in Greece and Turkey and to again explore Pompeii with family. A new ship put into service in May 2015, Viking Star is state of the art cruising limited to 930 over 18 age passengers. This is our second Viking Christmas week ocean cruise in the Med with grand daughters. Everything was fabulous- the weather, cabin, dining, activities, and shore ...

We chose this cruise because we had been on one that ended in Athens almost 2 years ago and my husband got sick (we were quarantined to the stateroom on our last day and missed the excursion in Athens). There was a special deal on the first 8 days of the 14 night Mediterranean Antiquities cruise, beginning in Athens and ending with disembarkation in Rome. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were at ...

Our short but sweet “Journey to Antiquities” cruise is over but will remain a special memory for a long, long time! We boarded the beautiful Star in Athens and we were able to go to our stateroom immediately. A last minute upgrade put us in a Penthouse Junior Suite which was a lovely space but the inclusion of free laundry (including dry cleaning!) was the biggest perk! Our housekeeping team ...

We had done a Viking Phine River Cruise 3 years ago and that was wonderful. I didn't want to do an ocean cruise on one of the mega ships, the size of Viking's looked perfect. The level of service and attention we were afforded was beyond compare. Everyone was happy, helpful and acted genuinely glad to see us. They made us feel special. The food on board was the absolute best. Plenty of ...

For my 75th birthday, I took three generations of my family to enjoy a cruise over Christmas and New Years of 2020. I could not imagine that the actual experience would be as wonderful and beautiful as the PBS Ads! It was! Every step of the journey was so easy and so well organized that I simply floated through a blissful two weeks of paradise. Each crew member from the Captain to the bathroom ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I've always wanted to see Greece and this price was wonderful. The tours were handled so well. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and handled my millions of questions with patience. I would recommend this tour to anyone. We had one day at sea that was rough but we survived it okay. The Christmas decorations were very tasteful on the ship. The food was superb. I loved the fact that I could ...

My sister and I took this cruise because we both had wanted to go to Athens, and we had never done that. We are both over 80 years old and have mobility problems. On the boat, everything was fine. Shore excursions less so. We did not realize that there were enrichment and entertainment options, Our fault, we did not look at the daily briefings. We both wanted to go to Knossos, but the boat ...

We had a fantastic time over Christmas week on this cruise of the Mediterranean. We had taken a Viking River Cruise and has such a wonderful experience, I trusted the Ocean cruise would be equally great. It was - in fact, even better! The ship had so much to offer, I actually looked forward to the "at-sea" days to fully experience it all. The dining options and quality of the food surpassed my ...

This was the perfect Christmas and New Year holiday. The ship is very modern, with Scandinavian style decor of the highest quality. Every fitment is top class. Staff are excellent. Food is outstanding, particularly in the Chef's Table restaurant where it excelled. The up front cost may seem on the high side, but we didn't need to spend at all if we chose because all our drinks were included, ...

First time to Europe and this cruise provided the areas of most interest to us. Very beautiful room and did not feel cramped for space. The luxury of not packing and unpacking travel was an important factor to us. All ship personnel we had contact with were very personal, attentive and very willing to assist with answering question or providing a service. Plenty of restaurant choices and food ...
